Java is a purely object-oriented programming language developed by Sun Microsystems in 1991. Initially it was named "Oak" by Games Gosling and his team. In 1995, it was renamed as Java. Being an object oriented language, it has the features of object oriented programming language embedded within it such as the following.

Encapsulation -It is the process of combining the data and codes into a single unit called class.

Inheritance -It is the process of defining a new class from an already existing class. Here the existing class is called the baseclass and the new class is called the derived class. The derived class possesses all the functionalities of the baseclass as well as some new functionalities of its own.

Polymorphism -It is the property by virtue of which the same object behaves differently under different circumstances.

Primarily the motivation of developing Java was to create a language through which writing programs should be possible so that they can be executed in any kind of CPU and with the evolution of Internet, Java became popular for writing Internet based applications.

Technically speaking, Java is a fool proof programming language. Every concept has been well understood before implementation.

Title: Reply for(samarendra swain) why Java does not include multiple inheritance

Java was actually designed to be simple,familiar and object-oriented.To keep it simple and familiar, the language has been made as similar as possible to C++ but without including the unnecessary complexities of the C++ language like multiple inheritance which causes more problems and confusion than it solves.The avoidance of multiple inheritance from Java language is to avoid the "diamond" problem associated with implementation of multiple inheritance.The diamond probem is the ambiguity that arises when two classes B and C inherit from A and another class D is inherited gform both B and C.Now if a method in D calls a method defined in A,which class does it inherit via, B or C?To avoid this situation, multiple inheritance is avoided in Java.Instead we have Java implement multiple inheritance by using interfaces.
